I have a new 44 page colour comic book zine called Coming Out Autistic.
It is available here and more info is below-
Coming Out Autistic is a queer comic book zine that features interviews with a variety of LGBTQ+ people. Each person is autistic and this comic tells their coming out stories.

The zine includes interviews, illustrations and comic book pages.

New Zine – Misremembering Sarah Kane

I have a new zine for sale!

Misremembering Sarah Kane Through My Own Suicide Attempts is a comic book zine about my own experiences with mental health, suicide and self harm. The zine features text, essays and comics. It is an abstract retelling of how I confuse my memories with my experiences of watching and reading plays by the cult 1990’s playwright Sarah Kane. I use comic books as a means to discuss being a suicide survivor and how this can affect memory and personal experiences.

Sarah Kane (3 February 1971 – 20 February 1999) was an English playwright who is known for her plays that deal with themes of redemptive love, sexual desire, pain, torture—both physical and psychological—and death.
